WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (GA-06) issued the following statement after the House Budget Committee approved the Fiscal Year 2017 Budget resolution, A Balanced Budget for a Stronger America:
 
“This evening, the House Budget Committee approved a plan to reduce the deficit by $7 trillion and balance the nation’s budget. It lays before the American people a positive vision for how we can solve our fiscal, economic, and national security challenges through reforms that would grow our economy and hold Washington accountable. If enacted, these policies would give states greater flexibility to help those in need of assistance, save Medicare and protect seniors’ health care, improve the delivery of necessary services, eliminate inefficiencies, and provide critical support for our military. It is a budget to improve the lives of the American people and strengthen our great nation. I look forward to moving these common sense, principled solutions forward in the days to come.”
